10 reasons we love ‘Modern Family’s Cameron and Mitchell

By Ben Kelly

To celebrate the season five finale of Modern Family, and part two of Cameron and Mitchell’s wedding, we take a look at why we love TV’s funniest gay couple…

1. They presented their child to the rest of the family in Lion King fashion.


2. They have had their masculinity questioned, and they have worked through it.

3. They can understand what the other means purely through a gesture.


4. They keep each other in check.


5. They understand that alcohol is not a solution.

6. As modern gay men, they know many important truths.


7. They’re fairly good in a crisis.

8. They understand that sexuality shouldn’t cause divisions.


9. They also use their position for good – like in this video for the Trevor Project.

10. …and we like to think their big day helped contribute to the American debate on gay marriage.


Congratulations guys!
